  • A place unfit for any majestic due to high physical effort should be to upload it but the landscapes and the height of aconcagua is worth a lot

  • Very good and not so expensive. But it seems to me that we should pay half as medicine, costs nothing... If it is full of tourist... Mendoza with dni should have 50% discount but we could never visit our province. That day we arrived and they had closed 10 minutes later we arrived. They did not let us enter u my friend was Brazilian

  • Beautiful national park around the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas! A must visit park for nature lovers. Aconcagua is very high mountain but it often shows itself which is not all that common for its other high siblings. Be aware that the altitude of the park entrance is almost in 3000 meters so the weather can be and is cold. The wind is especially fierce so make sure you are prepared with warm and windproof clothes, good walking shoes and sun screen.
  • Absolutely beautiful. They charge you 40 pesos per person for the entrance fee and the pleasure of walking around a small 15 minute loop. The views are amazing. If you want to actually hike for more than about 15 minutes and see more of the park then you're required to purchase a trekking permit, even if you're not trekking, weird I know. The trekking permit costs 200 pesos and you need to purchase that before you start hiking at the visitor center. Would recommend hiking to the confluence camp about 2 hours from the parking lot and 1.5 hours for the return.
  • You need a ticket to be able to hike to base camp, and this is pretty strictly enforced. The hike from the parking lot to confluencia (base camp) is about 4.5 miles, and base camp is about 2 miles above sea level. This would’ve been helpful to know since the park website (unhelpfully) marks everything in terms of hours, but different people hike at different speeds, particularly at altitude. The views in every direction, every step of the way, are spectacular!
  • Incredible park! The entrance is only 20 pesos and you can spend quite some time there. Do make sure to take it slow and just take in all the beautiful nature that is surrounding the valley of the path. It is good to put 2 hours for this place, especially if you wish to walk a little (or a lot) to the bridge that crossed the river St the end of the valley. They say it is 2 km further, but it definitely felt longer - and there is no signs towards the bridge, so keep walking until you actually see it. The bridge itself is nothing impressive, but the overall view is! You do not want to miss it.
  • Really nice place to hike, whether you want to easy 1-hour hike or the challenging 3-4 hour hike.
